9:13 am
thing. make sure you're reading the manual for the seat, but also checking the manual for the car as well. understand which way, as far as latch or seatbelt is better for their car. >> reporter: sharon wagner has two children. she's here to make sure her precious cargo is strapped in correctly. >> they taught us a simple way to latch it and cinch it down tight. the baby seat seemed like it was moving a little bit. taught us another way to do it. we feel more educated, feel we can be more confident knowing they're latched in properly. >> reporter: the non-profit organization called maryland kids and safety seats said child safety week is important to educate parents on educating children. >> issues regarding which seats are correct, what's the best form of transportation, where they can get assistance if they have questions. >> reporter: make sure you have a rear-facing seat with the
9:14 am
correct angle. in a crash, a rear facing baby will move into the back of the car seat minimizing whiplash. refrain from heavy snow suits. keep babies warm with blankets. remove hanging toys from the car seat handle, it can turn into a flying missile in a crash. when the child out grows the infant seat, graduate them to a rear facing convertible seat. hopefully following these tips, will keep your kids safe and secure in the car. sherrie johnson, abc2 news. the carroll county health department's going to offer car seat safety checks today, starting at 10:00 this morning and run them until noon. linda, out back, good morning, linda. >> once your kid is out of that car seat, you don't want to
9:15 am
forget about the booster seat. joining us this morning to tell us about that is myron ruben from aaa. this is your son, ben, thanks for being here too. he'll show us how this works. >> maryland has a law with booster seats. maryland has a child passenger safety law. children have to be buckled in a federally approved seat until their 8th birthday. the only exceptions are if your child is 4'9" or 60 pounds. a lot of parents think once they're out of the car seat, it's okay to put them in the back seat. >> that's why we call it the forgotten step. it pushes the child up, it boosts them up so the seatbelt can fit them correctly. low on the strong hip bones and right across the center between the neck and shoulder. that's why you need a booster seat. >> do you want to show us what kind of seat ben is sitting on
9:16 am
right now, there's two different types. >> there are two different types. we have the high back booster seat, you'd use that type of seat if your vehicle doesn't have head restraints or if the child's head was above the vehicle seat. ben is sitting on what we call a backless booster seat. we do have the head restrain here. by sitting on this, we can put the seatbelt right across, halfway between neck and shoulder. it rides low on the hips, as opposed to up here on his belly. >> if he was were just sitting on the seat, there could be a possibility he'd be high up. >> if they need a booster seat or if they can just sit on the vehicle seat. we can show you that real quick. can you unbuckle your seatbelt for us please? >> i'm going to take this out, stand up, good job, go ahead and
9:17 am
sit down. >> if he puts his fanny all the way up against the seat, his knees should be able to bend over the vehicle seat. that doesn't happen. the other thing is, if we buckle him, and this vehicle has what's called a seatbelt positioner. a lot of vehicles do not have that. if we buckle him, without the seat, this is going to start to ride up on his belly, it's going to start to come off the shoulder, like this and the next thing you know, when it's uncomfortable, the children are going to misuse it as the biggest misuse is behind the back. in the event of a crash, ben's going to go like this. very dangerous position for a child to be in. >> reporter: i understand, tomorrow, there'll be a free event for parents who might need that extra help, the hands on, i know just watching sometimes seems overwhelming. >> don't be afraid to ask for
9:18 am
help. at the owings mills fire department between 1:00 and 5:00, there'll be a free seat check. we recommend they call ahead to get an appointment so they don't have to wait so long. >> thank you so much, that was very helpful. ben you did a great job. thank you very much. >> linda, thank you. if you're looking for something new in terms of entertaining, the maryland home show may be the place to visit this weekend. stacey will check out the show coming up next. tax on everything you buy? that's in andy harris' unfair tax plan. 23% sales tax. a 23% sales tax will cut my business in half. would be devastating. andy harris' 23% sales tax absolutely makes no sense. 23% sales tax would really make things unaffordable. that's too high for the average american out here. i don't know how we would manage it really. don't like that idea.

9:29 am
school, those counselors who are affiliated with financial aid education and deal with legitimate grants, that's your first source. >> and you need to go straight to another source if you're looking for alternative ways to get your diploma for college or high school. scam schools are very common according to the bbb. many of them claim they can help you get a degree online, but make sure every institution you're interested in is accredited or that diploma won't be worth the paper it's printed on. there are plenty legitimate programs worth your time. use the internet to research schools. see how much interaction you'll get with staff and students. use the better business bureau's site. >> it takes time, money and a lot of hard work. if they're promising to deliver

just minutes before 10:00: getting ready to get up and go, enjoy this day. it's absolutely beautiful outside. looking at the harbor school network, owings mills with 65 degrees right now. winds out of the northeast, 16 miles per hour. and yeah, there's a little bit of a gust out there that'll be noticeable. one of the reasons we have this crispness to the air. we can in part thank the hurricane well off the east coast and pushing to the north of bermuda. 66 in annapolis, the other harbor school. overall, that breeze, because of the system off the coast. while we showed you that in the last half hour, i want to focus on the deep south.
